    Browser Support Note

    DuraCloud currently supports all of the major web browsers: Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. As of version 3.7.0, DuraCloud no longer supports Microsoft Internet Explorer. This change is in response to Microsoft's recent end of support announcement for Internet Explorer. This shift allows development effort to be focused on delivering the highest quality user experience for the vast majority of our users. If you are still using Internet Explorer, we recommend you consider moving to one of the supported browsers mentioned above.
